Climate and temperature

  In Crete the sun shines three hundred days a year. The mild and tolerable winter lasts from three to four months. The sun is often so hot that, as one journalist wrote, the very palm-trees feel at home in Crete. The most delightful time of year is spring or autumn. Snow, unknown on the plains, along the coast and in the towns is seen only on the White Mountains, on Psiloreitis and on the Siteia Mountains during the winter season.
